Artlink Art Detour

  • Downtown Phoenix
    P.O. Box 3426 Phoenix, AZ
  • Hosted by: Artlink
  • Date: March 8, 2021 to March 31, 2021
  • Recurring daily
  • Time: Times vary

Historically a weekend-centric event and more recently as “Phoenix Art Week,” 2021’s Art Detour expanded its run to 33 days to both honor the 33rd year of the celebration and to accommodate public health concerns by expanding the geography of the traditionally central Phoenix event, lessening the impact of large gatherings. 

The event will feature more than 300 arts activities and “Articipants,” defined as arts venues, arts and culture organizations, arts-supporting businesses from across the Valley, and visual and performing artists from the entire state.

 “The arts and culture community coming together to help develop a different, more impactful Art Detour is incredibly adaptive and industrious of these Articipants,” said Catrina Kahler, president and chief executive officer of Artlink. “Our goal as an organization is for the collective of engaged artists and businesses to have these 33 days to stand out from any of the last 33 days in the previous 12 months.”
